  4. Heat the other tbs of olive oil in a non-stick pan on medium high heat.

  7. Note: If you do not care for raw or rare fish this recipe is not for you. Cooking a tuna steak for 2-3 minutes per side will leave the middle quite rare, and barely warm. You could cook the fish longer until it is well done, but then you would basically spending a lot of money on a cut of fish that is meant to be served rare or raw. (IMHO!).
